We interrupt our regularly scheduled Yosemite posts to bring you another little adventure, featuring good old-fashioned rock and roll, with a hint of Bay Area liberal ‘screw haters’ attitude…

Where did I go last night that featured a pinball machine with an anti-racism message?

a 2

Why, to the fabulous ‘Ivy Room’ in Albany, California. And what did I do there?

a 3

I saw this guy play.

a 4

Okay, so you went to this place and saw that guy, I hear you all thinking. But did you go by yourself?

a 5

No, I went with these two guys, whom I have known longer than most of you have been alive. And who is the guy with the guitar, you are obviously wondering?

a 6

He is Eric McFadden. Don’t feel bad. I didn’t know who he was either. Big Johnny told me about him, and suggested we all go see the show. And he rocked.

a 7

There were a lot of musical styles in his music, but it was mostly rock and roll… with a little blues.

a 8

The Bay Area has always been supportive of its artists. There are venues for your art to be seen in.

a 9

And it’s… well… it’s the Bay Area.

a 10

Yup.

a 11

I like that he had different vocalists and guitarists join him on stage for a few songs.

a 12

Unfortunately, those clouds are made up mostly of smoke from fires as far away as Canada.

a 13

I never know where to look when I do selfies… also, I was pretty drunk. But I saw some good friends, and had a blast. And I feel more or less okay today.

a 14

Now, back to my Yosemite adventure!

  1. I really like the pinball photo! I’m going to post that to my Facebook profile, with credit, of course, going to you, Art. It should piss off more than a few right-wingers!
